Vote by Mail

 

If you are a registered voter in Albany County and have no changes in your name, address, party affiliation, you may call the County Clerk’s office 721-2546 during business hours and request an absentee ballot by mail.  The Clerk’s office will start mailing these out approximately 40 days before the election date.  Obviously, the sooner you request and return the ballots, the better.


Absentee Voting

 

A qualified voter may apply for an absentee ballot at any time during the calendar year in which the election is held, but not on the day of the election.  Remember to return your absentee ballot immediately to ensure delivery to the county clerk’s office by 7 p.m. on election day.   For further information about voter registration, voting locations, absentee voting, or voting assistance, contact the County Clerk’s office at (307) 721-2546.


Know Your Rights

If you register by mail, you will be required to show ID the first time you go to the polls to vote. If you don’t have ID on you, you have the right to a provisional ballot and will have until 5 P.M. the next day to provide proper identification at the Laramie County Clerk Office for it be counted.

If the voting machines are malfunctioning, you have the right to a provisional ballot and it will be counted.

If a pollworker or County official challenges your citizenship, identity, or residence, you have the right to a provisional ballot. You have until 5 P.M. the next day to provide proper identification at the Laramie County Clerk Office. Other voters may NOT challenge your right to vote.

If you are under the age of 18, you may register to vote only if you will turn 18 before or on the next election day.

If you have children under the age 18, they may go into the voting booth with you.

Due to U.S. Census Bureau data, Wyoming’s population does NOT meet the threshold that would require for the polling places to provide translated ballots for non-English speaking or ESL voters.

If you require assistance due to disability, including the inability to read or write, you can ask for help from a pollworker or County official.

All polling places in Laramie County are ADA accessible. There is at least one ADA compliant voting machine at each polling place – the machine is placed on a table with a chair and allows enough room for a wheelchair.  The voting machine is equipped with the ability to enlarge text, allow the voter to put on headphones to listen to the ballot and use a keypad. Persons with a disability may bring a person of their choosing (e.g. family member or friend) into the voting booth with them. If a person with a disability requires assistance, does not have a person of their choosing present at the voting booth and it’s during a partisan election, 1 election judge from each political party will help.
